PAUL LECLAIR RECOGNIZED AS FELLOW OF THE NEW YORK BAR FOUNDATION
January 20, 2023
Fellows are nominated by peers and recognized for distinguished achievement, dedication to the legal profession, and commitment to the organized bar and service to the public.
“Being a Fellow of the New York Bar Foundation is an honor,” states Chair of the Fellows, James R. Barnes. “Fellows represent one percent of the New York State Bar Association membership. Being nominated and elected is a notable achievement.”
As Foundation ambassadors, Fellows exemplify the spirit of caring and sharing by demonstrating their belief that the practice of law is a helping profession.
“That statement truly describes Paul,” reflects Tony Adams, founding partner of Adams Leclair. “He has that reputation. Paul is a model of collegiality, is always willing to mentor younger associates, and leads by example. Paul is an excellent attorney and in no small part, that is due to his commitment to our community and those in the profession.”
In addition to receiving two Pro Bono Awards from the US District Court of Western New York, Leclair has been awarded the Humanitarian Award by the Monroe County Bar Foundation. This was for founding a local chapter of the SOLACE program which is designed to help members of the legal community or their immediate families who are in critical need because of a recent, sudden catastrophic illness, injury, or event.
